A hidden paradise just off the beaten track”

Restaurant, views, staff, tour booking services, grounds, pool

Nadeem and his well-trained staff provided the quintessential island experience, working hard to meet even my smallest requests with efficiency, precision, and grace. It is outside of Patong, in between there and Karon Beach. There are shuttles pretty much around the clock. The grounds were unbelievable, very well-kept, exquisite gardens and pools, and a view of Bandaman Sea which was simply unbelievable. The infinity pool was a real pleasure to take a nice dip after a hot day at the beach, just before enjoying and unbelievable dinner at the restaurant, sitting out on a patio overlooking the sea, far away from the bustle of the tourist life in Patong. I came to find some tranquility and beauty, and was met with an experience which surpassed my expectations. I think one would be hard-pressed to find a more serene, and exquisitely beautiful location to take a holiday. When I needed help finding some equipment for my camera, Nadeem directed me where to go in the Jung Ceylon mall. When I wished to book a tour of the islands, something I strongly recommend, the staff set it up with less than twelve hours notice. I have had many foot massages in Thailand, it is an indulgence, but the woman at the spa gave an unbelievable massage which helped me relax just before taking on the stress of travel. I could not ask for more, and I am thankful that I will no longer have to read through hundreds of reviews before finding the right place. The Secret Cliff Resort is the only place I would stay in Phuket - so no more need to read up. I found my place for the next several years, and cannot wait to go back. Brandon H.

Secret Cliff Resort”

beautiful views, nice rooms, quiet place
costly taxi

The Secret Cliff Resort and Restaurant is in a beautiful quiet place away from the craziness of Patong and Karon. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and clean. Gorgeous view to Andaman sea from the balcony of the room! The pool is not large but it’s enough to spend time here swimming and having jacuzzi. Also it has a great view out to sea. The only minus is in very expensive taxi from the hotel. Although there is a free transfer to Karon and Patong, it’s a pitty has no such to Phuket town! The restaurant is also not so cheap, but very delicious menu. Overall I really liked the hotel

A Secret worth keeping...”

Wonderful views of Karon and Andaman Ocean. Friendly and helpful staff.
The only area where I think can be improved is the buffet breakfast. One morning it was cold and the food options were not appealing; ie. lasagna. More fresh fruit and "breakfast" foods would be good.

We stayed three nights at Secret Cliff Resort and overall we had a wonderful stay. We were greeted on arrival by the Receptionist and Concierge and then given an upgrade to the family room. The resort is immaculate, the staff friendly going above and beyond for guests and not to mention the magnificent views over Karon Beach and the Andaman Ocean. Secret Cliff Resort is only a short distance from Patong and Karon/Kata allowing us to enjoy both of these places but yet come back to our hideaway. We would definitely recommend Secret Cliff Resort and look forward coming back in the near future.

Lovely rooms, great views and fantastic service”

The views back to Karon are magnificent as is the view from the pool

Magnificent stay. Food in restaurant superb and reasonably priced (curries 200 - 240 thb). Seafood great. Views spectacular, rooms very nice. Tropical setting in amongst the trees. Only disadvantages were the 250 thb taxi into Karon (if you needed to go) and the walk up the hill to the breakfast area is exceptionally steep (45 degrees in part) and would not recommend for persons with walking difficulties (albeit the staff would pick up in golf cart if needed). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and rooms were clean. Spent 4 days at Secret Cliff then went on to a 5 star resort in Karon that was twice the price but only half as enjoyable. Secret Cliff is a nice quiet and peaceful resort yet only 5 minutes by taxi from the Karon Centre. Definitely would recommend.

Your Own Slice of Rustic Haven”

Great view, peaceful, hotel is very well run and maintained, good food, convenient rental of scooters.
The sink in our room smelled.

There was basically nothing to dislike about Secret Cliff. It's set atop a cliff between Patong and Karon away from the traffic and buzz of the beaches, the resort is beautiful, the staff are helpful and efficient, and it's a self-contained private getaway. Food at their two restaurants is definitely above average. Secret Cliff has its own private snorkelling spot (big big plus for us), if you can make it down some steep rocks. We even sighted a school of barracudas! The beach chairs placed along the edge of the cliff further allow you to unwind at the end of the day and enjoy a totally unobstructed view of the Andaman sunset. Can't say anything else except that we loved Secret Cliff, and would not hesitate to go back again!

Secret Gem”

Location, views, privacy, and a great infinity pool.
We had a sticking door because of a lot of recent rain, and the hot water in the shower required fine tuning like an old Jaguar. But these were really minor issues

The Secret Garden Resort is now my favorite place to stay in Phuket. Located about halfway between Patong and Karon beaches, it sits high on the cliff above a rocky coastline below. It consists mostly of 3 or 4 room bungalows scattered around the lushly landscaped hillside. The view from each of the rooms looks out over the Andaman Sea. From the restaurant terrace there is a great view of Karon beach. I rented a motorbike in Karon for me and my lady for 200 baht/day, which is the way to go because the tuk-tuks will charge you 200 baht per trip to go there from either Patong or Karon. The hotel also rents motorbikes for a bit more money and they have a regular shuttle service to both Patong and Karon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is quite good. The breakfast buffet is not lavish, but very adequate and provided changes each day, which is nice. You will get some exercise walking around the grounds here, but you will definitely want to explore the gardenlike grounds and varying views of this great property. I will stay here again without question.

Outstanding resort, highyl recommended!”

The beautiful cliff top location, lush landscaped grounds and views. Everything actually!
I loved everything! But I imagine some people would be put off by the fact that there is no beach - didn't bother us at all!

The Secret Cliff was amazing - one of my top 5 hotel experiences ever! We were upgraded to an ocean view room, which was brilliant! The landscaped grounds are gorgeous. We went snorkelling off the bottom of the cliff on our first day - amazing! The photos don't always give the impression of just how lovely this place is, and how much of it is in villa-style accommodation spread out across the hill. I cannot recommend it highly enough! The staff were lovely and it was such good value for money too. The restaurant (where you have breakfast and can have dinner too) has a great view over Karon beach.

Great place to stay”

Beautiful tranquil setting away from the craziness of Patong and Karon, friendly staff, clean airy rooms, great views from room and restaurant
Despite being a pricier hotel, wireless in the rooms is not included and not cheap. Bit of a rip-off actually. If you don't use the once a day shuttle to Patong or Karon beach taxis are expense and another rip-off (but that's more of a general problem with Phuket than the hotel itself - fixed HIGH prices, no meters)

My only complaint would be that the wireless internet in the rooms is not included and is not cheap. Bit of a rip-off actually. But overall, it's a great place and I would stay there again.

Close enough to the action”

Secret Cliff is exactly what you would expect for a cliff resort, with a little more to offer. Rent a motorbike from them and ride a few minutes to Patong, Karon and Kata beach. There is a small trail that leads you down to the water behind the office. A little scary but if you're looking to soak in the water away from the crowds, this is perfect! Everyone was so nice and respectful. The pools were perfect. Honestly, the best massage I have ever received was at the spa right on site. The food was great, so many choices! If you're super picky about rooms I do recommend paying extra for a nicer one. Our bathroom was outdated and took some getting used to but if you're planning to spend majority of your time out, who cares. The pillows were a little hard for my liking but otherwise it's a good bang for your buck.

very enjoyable”

great rooms, friendly helpful staff,great buffet breakfast

On first arrival at the hotel we were told that they were over booked and did not have a room for us until the next night, but they were putting us in another hotel for the night. After travelling all the way from australia we were not happy, we were tired and just wanted to get to our room. After a short delay we were taken to another hotel,which was ok.Next morning we were picked up and returned to the secret cliff resort, then we were told there was no rooms ready. After a bit of a discussion they found us a room. A couple of days later the air con stopped working in the room, we call front desk and they came to have a look at it, they seemed to fix it and went away. Next minute the phone rang and they said they were coming to help with the bags they were putting us in another room. This new room was fantastic. Overall although we had a few problems with our stay here i would say that you could not fault the staff they did everything they could to rectify any problems and we ended up in one of there top rooms with a beautiful ocean view. The only thing that i would say i was dissapointed with was the so called free tuk tuk service,it only went once a day and it was one way, needs improving for the size and quality of the hotel.

Secret Cliff Resort”

Beautiful views, friendly staff and a great loctaion
Steep walk around resort

Secret Cliff Resort was the first stop for our thailand honeymoon and we were blown away from the very beginning by the exceptionally helpful staff and amazing views of Karon beach. Our bed had been beautifully decorated with flowers and lovegearts for us when we opened our doors and we spent the first few moments on the balcony admiriring the breath-taking views. Most of our meals were eaten at the resort, with a buffet breakfast provided in our room cost and a great selection of nice, 'clean' meals for lunch and dinner. We found it a convenient location- only a few minutes to the popular shopping district of Paton and a few minutes the other way to beautiful, relaxing Karon beach and with courtesy busses going from the hotel and picking us up it made it even more convenient. Secret cliff Resort is definetly on our list to visit again!

Beautiful Hotel”

Beautifully designed, looks exotic, rooms are awesome, quiet location, overlooking the ocean. Restaurant is fantastic
Located on a cliff..so have to climb up a really steep path to reach the reception from your room.

my wife fell in love with this place....she didnt wanna go out of the hotel for sightseeing, she loved it so much. the resort is located on a steep cliff and the rooms are beautifully and elegantly designed with fantastic bath tub and shower. fully recommend it to fellow travellers to phuket. the only problem is ( not really a problem if you look at it from the fitness angle) that the resort is on a cliff and the reception is on the top whereas the rooms are located down towards the ocean, so everytime you have to go the reception or restaurant, its a steep climb. it left me panting everytime i reached the restaurant and had to catch my breath before devouring the awesome breakfast buffet. ok..one thing to note - its in the centre of the happening patong beach area and kanon beach. you can see kanon beach from the rooms, now to go either of the beaches everytime is a costly affair - the hotel provides a shuttle service to both the places and back but at fixed schedules, so u are like stuck to the schedules. we didnt really use it becuase we wanted our own space which proved a little costly :) hotel taxi to kanon beach - 150 baht for a 0.5 km ride. from paton beach to hotel at night ( 11 pm) - taxi or tuk tuk - 250 bath for a 1 km ride. other than this the resort is highly recommended.

Very nice place, excellent staff”

The Secret Cliff Resort and Restaurant is a great place to stay. The hotel staff was very attentive and helpful. Some rooms are located on the side of a hill, but the staff will provide rides to and from your room upon request. Great place to stay while in Karon Beach, Phuket.

fabulous dream place”

landscaped gardens - delightful chalet style rooms

Secret Cliff is only about 15 minute taxi journey from the frenetic busy resort PATONG yet a million miles away in terms of peace and serenity. We were impressed by the whole concept of this hotel project. The reception and restaurants were situated at the higher level with the chalet rooms scattered on varing levels, nestling into the cliff going down towards the ocean. The chalets have had very thoughful landscaping so as to harmonize with the natural surroundings and also give privacy to each individual property. Interiors were spacious, Clean and stylish. This is a great place for a few day's if you are travelling around Phuket. Breakfast was good. Staff although pleasant really need more training as mostly seemed to lack direction. This did not however bother us as we liked the place so much.

Beautiful Hotel on the Cliff”

Privacy and Serenity

Secret Cliff is a quaint little hotel located on the cliff which divides Patong and Karon. It is about 5 to 10 mins to either beach so excellent location. I would recommend the Secret Cliff if you are looking to get away from it all and having some time to yourself/ yourselves. The views from the room, pool and restaurants are simply breathtaking, and with a cup of coffee and book in hand, can spend a lovely afternoon idling away. The rooms were clean, spacious with sort of a rustic feel to it. Be sure to get the sea facing rooms so you wake up with the warm sun on your face. The toilets are clean and similiarly spacious. I ordered room service most of the time which was pretty decent overall. The down side to the Secret Cliff is that it is quite a walk from the reception area to your room and demands quite a bit of strength and stamina given that the steps on the slopes are quite steep. Will definetley be back. For the price I paid, it was a steal.

Improved visit”

Nice environment, value for money & improved service in food & areas

We visit Phuket every year and will stay in Secret Cliff Resort & Restaurant every time. These few years we were always upgraded to better rooms but not for this round, but that doesn't bother us. We were very surprised by the new improvements done to the hotel, as we have been a regular return customer since 2008 til now. Particularly the colourful garden figurines everywhere in the hotel, restaurant & rooms. We reckon either the management has changed or they're placed to attract families and children. As all these years many reviews were that this hotel has steep slope (which they still do) and not convenient for the elderly and children. But this year we see alot of them and even big tour groups! Frankly speaking, we like the peacfulness and nice environment of this place, however if they were to become a commercialize hotel, we will look for other hotels in future visit to Phukets.

Good to stay with lots nature”

Great view over sunset, nice to be surrounded by tropical nature

stayed two nights in patong beach and another two nights over in karon beach this time in phuket, and selected secret cliff beach resort. i believe it was a right choice especially at secret cliff. actually it is rather suitable for couple in terms of facility and location, but wer did enjoyed. it could be even better if there was more convenient transportation services, as we faced a bit troublesome to go out. i recommend anyone to stay there should get own transportation.

One of the best resorts I've stayed at in Phuket”

Very quiet, secluded and (mostly) private accommodation. I say mostly, as the balconies on the rooms adjoin each other (separated by a half wall), =, and end room have wrap around windows that look out onto a common staircase, so in these ares remember to be "decent". The restaurant serves a variety of food,and the breakfast is well worth it. The staff are exceptionally helpful and very friendly. for the money I think Secret Cliff is in a great location, with free regular shuttles to Patong and Karon. Away from the hustle and bustle of Patong, and the melancholy of Karon, it's in an ideal location overlooking a wonderful beech. Highly recommended!d

Great view and big rooms...”

Sea view from the room as well as the restaurant

I had a great stay at Secret Cliff Hotel and Restaurant, hotel staff are nice and friendly, except for the restaurant staff (night shift) the lady is a bit rude when she answer, I did even asked her if she knows how to smile, they told me they close at 11pm but by 10:15pm they start switching off some lights and the music as well. I asked the cashier, I thought you're closing at 11, then why did you turn off your music, without even asking their customer, as a respect to their customer. The place is boring without music especially late night.Anyway, that's the only bad point i encounter fr the restaurant, others are good and friendly special mention to the driver, he was so nice and the pizza counter staff as well, very friendly lady. The hotel room is big and very clean, complete with bathrobes, umbrellas bedroom slippers and beach slippers as well, beach towels. I love the bed, so romantic style, bedsheets are clean and towels too. They have big flat sreen tv with International channels, a coffee and tea maker. Actaully you don't need the aircon, just open the door which is facing the sea, it's very windy and the sea view is calming, you will forget any problems you have by just looking at the sea, very good for meditation, the big proch is nice place to hang out for coffee and enjoying the sea breeze. Swimming pool is overlooking the Andaman Sea and the sunset. Try to go down the cliff, it's amazing, good for exercising too, but not for the older people, try running goin up the hill and you will burn calories, nice feeling when you're body is sweating, i love it and am planning to stay at Secret Cliff again. but don't forget to bring mosquito repellant cos there are lots of mosquitos at night time, especially outside, but inside the room i didn't found any so it's safe. They have mosquito repellant if you need one. By the way the fridge is full of drinks, they have wine and tidbits, and food, you can order from your room. Overall i had a pleasant stay at SCHR
